Diversity and Inclusion
Oxford Companies is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion among its staff (known at the CREW) and in our community.
The CREW and our many community partners and stakeholders are our most valuable assets, and we celebrate their individual differences, backgrounds, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, unique capabilities, and talents. These add not only to our company culture, but to our reputation and the achievements of our organization.
We embrace and value our CREW’s diversity of age, color, ethnicity, family and marital status, gender identity or expression, sex, language, national origin, physical and mental ability and disability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make each employee unique. We support the Black Lives Matter movement and ongoing social change that will make our society more equitable for all people.
Oxford has created diversity initiatives that impact our practices and policies for recruitment, hiring, and retention, as well as compensation and benefits, professional development programs, social and recreational programs, and the ongoing development of a more equitable work environment. In 2020, Oxford created a Diversity and Inclusion Council to focus on rooting out systemic racism and discriminatory practices in our community through education, conversation, and support. We’ve started taking action toward this mission by focusing on our internal policies and procedures and conducting climate surveys to gauge our organizational and community environment. We’ve also launched a CREW Challenge with our team members that facilitates and encourages a monthly educational initiative on the topic of racial awareness and justice. We plan to continue conducting research and providing education and events about diversity to impact not only our organization, but our families and communities as well.
